This Funzing Experience:

Want to feed your brain and your stomach? Join us for a dining experience like no other at one of our unique DIM SUM TALKS - where you can delve into a fascinating subject whilst sampling a selection of Ping Pongs finest dim sum.


UPDATE: If this talk is sold out, there's another one on August 28th (without the Dim Sum) here: http://uk.funzing.com/funz/ldn-talks-bitcoin-and-ethereum-for-dummies-10567


Bitcoin, Ethereum and the future of digital currency

Bitcoin and Ethereum have been in the news a lot recently due to spectacular price rises.

But what exactly is Bitcoin? Is it too late to get involved, or is this just the start of a something big?

In this talk I cover the basics of cryptocurrencies from scratch, assuming no technical knowledge. At the end of the evening you’ll know:

* The principles of how Bitcoin works

* The key differences between Bitcoin and Ethereum

* Why Bitcoin is an example of a “blockchain" and how this will transform our society

* How to buy and sell digital currency

* Smart Contracts: how they will change how we work in the future

* About the world’s most expensive pizza!

My aim is not to tell you what digital currency to buy, or when to buy. Instead I want you to give you the tools, passion and confidence you need to participate in the biggest technological shift since the creation of the Internet.

Dim Sum Talks are a brand new concept, taking our well known Funzing Talks @ Night events - and turning them into a dining experience with a difference. Alongside Ping Pong Covent Garden, we've pulled together an impressive array of leading intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work get togethers.

Alongside a fascinating talk from one of our top speakers, you will receive a 6 x dim sum platter exclusively put together by the culinary experts over at the famous Ping Pong restaurant group. Ping Pong is a contemporary and lively group of restaurants serving Dim Sum, cocktails and Chinese teas. An ideal choice for a quick, light lunch or a fun night out - as they say, all the fun is in the sharing.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
